BUSINESS, THE "SATURDAY'S HEROES" LP (DAILY)
One of the finest street-punk albums ever, Business' second album 'Saturday's Heroes' was originally released in 1985 on the Harry May record Company and still sounds as fresh and genuine as the day it was released. Pure anthemic OI! from the glory days of UK working class skinhead culture. This new and long awaited vinyl re-edition also comes with a slightly improved artwork and a printed inner with unseen pictures from the same session as the front cover's one, plus all the lyrics to singalong to. OI!

Section 5, alongside other bands as The Crack, Vicious Rumours, Condemned 84 or the long standing The Business, were carrying the banner of the true street punk music and spirit during the second half of the ‘80s after the demise of the first wave of UK oi! bands. Features 12 brilliant old-school punk-oi! cuts full of melody as well as rawness. Includes classics such as “Every Saturday”, “For The Love Of Oi!”, “Section 5” or “A Love So Fine” alongside punkish cover versions of Prince Buster´s “Big 5” and the Troggs “Wild Thing.”
BLACK FLAG "THE UNHEARD 1983 DEMOS" 7" (FANCLUB()
The three best tracks from the legendary 1983 demo session, the only recording of the band as a 5-piece and catching them at the absolute peak of their powers. Killer.
BLACK FLAG "LICORICE PIZZA AND MORE" 7" (FANCLUB)
There's a pretty cool story behind this 7". I guess back in Late '81 (early '82?) in order to get ready for the release of "Damaged", Black Flag had about a hundred or so promo 7"s printed with "Thirsty And Miserable" on the A side and "Life Of Pain" on the B side. Both of the songs were different (out-take) versions of the songs which would appear on the "Damaged" LP. So they took these promos (with no covers) down to Licorice Pizza and asked the people that worked there to hand them out to people who they thought would be interested. Well, I guess the assholes that worked there didn't think anyone would be interested, so they threw the fucking things away!! So all but a few copies were destroyed, but lucky for you, and for me, a few years ago, someone came across a copy and decided it would be a good idea for this to be released out to the public. This bootleg 7" was born out of that idea. It has the demo versions of both songs that were originally released on the promo 7", and also an old demo recording of a demo version of Spray Paint, with Dez on vocals!! This thing is pretty amazing and a record that will most likely want to be heard by all Black Flag fans. Enjoy!!
GERMS, THE "LEXICON DEVIL" 7" (FANCLUB)
"Oh my! What is there to tell you about The Germs that you don’t already know? The intro to No God is taken from one thing that Darby, Pat and I had/have in common: we all love/d Yes. It’s from “Roundabout” the first song on “Fragile”. A fantastic record. The special guitar sound was acquired through a direct line in to the soundboard since Pat had forgotten to bring with him an amplifier. Some people told me that the new version of Germs without Darby shall be pretty great so it may be worth catching them live if they come around."
MISFITS "COUGH/COOL" 7" (FANCLUB)
"Cough/Cool" is the first single released by the horror punk band the Misfits. It was released in August 1977 on singer Glenn Danzig's label Blank Records.
NIRVANA "A TRIBUTE TO THE VASELINES" 7" (FANCLUB)
Rare 7" vinyl pressing of Nirvana " A Tribute to the Vaselines ". Tracks include: Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam, Son of a Gun/ Molly's Lips ( Medley ). Never officially released and was only available from Waterfront records prior the Nirvana's tour of Australia.
NIRVANA "AND THE REST - BBC SESSIONS" 7" (FANCLUB)
Unofficial release as a supplement to a 12" 12 track named "Almost Everything - The BBC Sessions;" features three tracks with awesome packaging - silkscreened on a thick chipboard pocket sleeve! Tracks: Son Of A Gun, Something In The Way, Polly (New Wave Version)"
NIRVANA "TOTAL FUCKING GODHEAD" 7" (FANCLUB)
Three track fanclub release from the early 90's. This is the only place to get this version of Lithium, every other boot, vinyl or CD, is sourced from this release. This is a very early, very important bootleg release that appeared in June 1991, Nirvana even referred to it from the stage during the 8/15/91 & 8/30/92 shows. These are believed to be taken NEVERMIND demos.
NIRVANA "SMELLS LIKE NIRVANA" 7" (FANCLUB)
Four live tracks from London, Nov 1991. Polly (New Wave) / Come on Over (Aneurysm) / Been a Son / Something in the Way

Previously unreleased tunes from the legendary Canadian punk band. Contains 'Auschwitz Jerk', 'Wet Dream Girl' and 'Heinrich Himmler'. Comes with picture sleeve and insert. Limited edition of 600 copies on black vinyl.
DAMNED, THE "AT THE BBC" LP (FANCLUB)
The Damned- At The BBC LP. Seriously if you are into the Damned and haven't heard these BBC sessions you are missing out! This is a collection of BBC recordings by the always amazing Damned. This LP focuses mostly on songs from Machine Gun Etiquette and the Black Album era with a couple from Phantasmogoria as well. Featuring excellent alternate versions of some of their best loved songs including: Plan 9, Channel 7, Love Song, Liar, Noise Noise Noise, Smash It Up, History Of The World, I Just Can't Be Happy Today, Hit Or Miss, Drinking About My Baby, Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde, There Will Come A Day and The Shadow Of Love.
GERMS, THE "LION'S SHARE" LP (FANCLUB)
The infamous GERMS bootleg LP, rumored having been released by some ex-member of the group. Whether or not this is true (please share your information in the comments section), what’s most remarkable about this LP is that it was not only the first time for the complete “Cruisin’”-session to appear on vinyl; it also has a much better sounding version of the band’s final gig on the flip, compared to the rather crappy sounding one on the Germs Anthology CD. All five studio tracks captured on “Lion’s Share” are exceptional, but most exceptional is “Not all right”, which is disturbing, kaputt and grandiose.
KIDS, THE "NAUGHTY KIDS" LP (FANCLUB)
Fanclub pressing of the second LP from Belgium's THE KIDS. Comes shrink wrapped on colored vinyl.
WEIRDOS, THE "DESTROY ALL MUSIC" LP (BOMP)
Reissue of 1979 classic. Their 1977 Bomp single "Destroy All Music" was a nihilistic anthem, and is now regarded as a classic, "Destroy All Music" compiles the now classic 1977 EP Bomp and the 1979 "Who, What, When, Where, Why?" mini-LP in its entirety and includes previously unreleased early demos.
THOR'S HAMMER "IF YOU KNEW: ICELANDIC PUNK & BEAT '65-67" LP (UGLY POP)
Best known to garage enthusiasts for "My Life", their stellar contribution to the second Nuggets box, Thor's Hammer was also responsible for an incredibly scarce 1966 EP that is easily among the toughest records of the era. Ugly Pop now presents this long-overdue LP, compiling 14 mid '60s nuggets-- the above mentioned monsters included-- from these Icelandic garage legends, who seasoned their northern beat with some of the rawest, wildest fuzzpunk heard anywhere! Fully authorized high quality pressing in printed inner sleeve, licensed from SENA (Iceland)
BENT WIND "SUSSEX" LP (UGLY POP)
The Holy Grail of Canadian rock, this raw, murky slab of heavy psych was released by local indie label Trend in autumn 1970 and immediately sank without a trace. Over the decades, however, obsessive fans and collectors of the era's unsung greats gradually came to recognize the obscure Toronto band's genius, the now impossible-to-find original LP eventually trading hands for $5000+ plus in the rare vinyl market. After years of bootlegs, compact discs and pricey European pressings, this mythical Canadian LP is finally available at home in its intended format for the first time in 44 years. Fully authorized high quality pressing in deluxe jacket with printed inner sleeve and new liner notes, licensed direct from Marty Roth.
